“This was our first family vacation and I’m overwhelmed with happiness!”
Taylor was born with VATER Syndrome, a pattern of related birth defects involving many of the areas of the spine, rectum, heart, trachea, esophagus, radius (bone of the arm), and kidneys. Taylor has had numerous complications due to her illness. She was born with a webbed leg which had to be amputated when she was 9 months old; she has permanent kidney damage, an extra rib on her left side and a colostomy. Although Taylor fights daily battles to stay healthy, she always maintains a beautiful smile on her face.
When Taylor was asked what she wanted for her wish, her immediate response was to visit go to Disney World: “I wanted to go on an adventure and what better place than Disney. It was magical.”
For her wish, Kids Wish Network arranged an all expenses paid trip to Disney World for Taylor and her family including tickets to Disney World and Wonderworks as well as accommodations at the Sheraton Orlando North and dinner every evening. Taylor had a blast on the rides at all of the parks, especially Islands of Adventure and Universal.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without Kids Wish Network and our family, this was our first family vacation and I’m overwhelmed with happiness” said Crystal, Taylor’s mom.
